SAFETY MATTERS TO KMR
KMR upholds an intense focus on safety in our daily business practices. It is a mandatory responsibility and attitude that we require from our employees, subcontractors, customers and all other visitors to or work areas.
It is essential that all of KMR’s construction-site personnel become Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) certified. Obtaining OSHA endorsement guarantees that KMR staff will achieve and maintain desirable levels of industry safety standards.
We appreciate the aesthetic outcome of every project, but product pales in comparison to the wellbeing of every person that is involved with our process.
A Culture of Safety
OSHA is an agency of the United States Department of Labor, created as a result of the Occupational Safety and Health Act, signed into law on Dec. 29, 1970. The legislation was aimed at protecting the rights of workers; requiring that employers provide employees with an environment free from any hazard which has been identified.
OSHA’s mission is to “assure safe and healthful working conditions for working men and women by setting and enforcing standards and by providing training, outreach, education and assistance”. OSHA’s workplace safety inspections have been shown to reduce injury rates.
